Croatian midfielder officially joins Chelsea FC

Jamie McDonald

Too. Much. Young. Talent...

We knew Chelsea had reached an agreement to sign Croatian sensation Mario Pasalic back in January, but on Wednesday, they made the signing official. The club has announced that Pasalic has officially signed with Chelsea, and shared the following comments from the player:

‘I am very happy because I am now a Chelsea player. I am very impressed by the training ground and I must thank everybody at Hajduk. This is now a new start in my career.'

‘I am a central midfielder, my favorite player is Frank Lampard, and so I am very happy to be a Chelsea player.’

Pasalic was impressive last season, and will reportedly spend a short bit of time training with the first team before eventually heading out on loan. Where the club decide to send him will be interesting, as Vitesse would seem the obvious choice, but it's entirely possible that he's already advanced beyond the level of competition he'd see in the Eredivisie.

Regardless, it's good to see this deal officially done, and to see Pasalic holding a Chelsea shirt.
